Perodua pulls out of UK

Bad news for fans of rebadged Malaysian cars; Perodua are pulling out of the UK, announcing that they will no longer be importing the Myvi supermini.

Perodua sold just 122 of the cars in 2013, according to figures from the SMMT, but the firm will be ensuring that existing owners aren’t left without support.

“We remain committed in supporting our customers in the UK and our business partner, despite no longer supplying our vehicles here,” said Perodua president and CEO, Datuk Aminar Rashid Salleh.

A total of £1.2m has been committed to ensuring a supply of parts and servicing for the next eight years.
